The ‘LIE’: ‘Life is Easy’

“They thought they were ‘woke’ – until they woke up in each other’s bodies.”

Welcome to the world of best friends Jamie-Li (Chye-Ling Huang), a straight Chinese-Kiwi woman, and Curtis (Cole Jenkins), a gay white man — who find themselves body-swapped, Freaky Friday-style, after a wild night celebrating their joint 25th birthdays. They soon find the issues of race, gender and sexuality to be much more complex than they ever imagined.

You can see this situation play out in Life is Easy…or LIE…an eight-episode satirical comedy from New Zealand debuting this Sunday, July 19, on queer streamer Revry.

Life is Easy was first streamed by TV New Zealand in December, 2019.
